BANGALORE: The compound wall of Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) School in the Kadu Malleswaram ward, opposite  BJP Office, has become a favourite spot for people to urinate, thereby making it very difficult for the students to sit in the classrooms and listen to their teachers carefully. It is really amazing how some passersby have spoilt the sanctity of the school premises by peeing on the compound wall which has been emanating an obnoxious smell. The students often complained that they are unable to bear the horrible stench.

When City Express took up the issue with the ward corporator, G Manjunath Raju , he said. “The job codes are done and tenders have been called to renovate the whole school . The works estimated at `1 crore will begin at the earliest  and this ‘issue of stench’ will disappear.”

With two or three months left for the school examinations, students residing at this ward are ready to hit the newly renovated and developed playground in their ward. The ground at 5th cross Malleswaram which was earlier used for various illegal purpose by drug addicts is now fully overhauled for the children to use this facility.

When City Express spoke to Jagadish, a resident, he said, “the playgrounds are a real place to relax and come out of our daily work pressure. Since they have been renovated, it is quite pleasant now.” The ward corporator expressed his confidence that the playground opposite  K C General Hospital would be developed by this summer. “The developmental works are on. With our constant efforts, the ground at 18th cross Malleshwaram, is fully dedicated for the children.Earlier it was used for one or the other mela and utsav programmes.” We also discovered that some of the saplings which were planted on 6th main road, Kadu Malleshwaram as part of citizen and government initiative, are not well maintained. “The bamboo fencing has been broken and even the plants are not watered on regular basis,” he adds.
